  • Well of course!! Less than 4% of people who catch this virus die! So doing nothing is effective enough for 95% of the population! There is also a vaccine. https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/nih-clinical-trial-investigational-vaccine-covid-19-begins
    • Archie Bunker
      There's a flu vaccine too. And how many people die from that?
    • Linda Joy
      And how many people die from other things but since they had coronavirus they've been told to mark it as due to corona?
    • Linda Joy
      There is a measles vaccine, too, but an alarming number of people are still dying from it.
    • Archie Bunker
      It's an election year, Linda. It's all hype.
    • Linda Joy
      You got that right!
  • COVID-19 vaccines are being researched across the world. I couldn't give you a specific medicine. We know people who are infected with the virus need supportive care to help them breathe. Take it from Tom Hanks and other celebrities. They're still self-quarantined obviously, but they are feeling a lot better.
    • Linda Joy
      Some people who have the virus have no symptoms. But I'm very thankful and sympathetic to those who are growing antibodies for the rest of us!
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      We can make it sound like everything is fine and dandy, but some people as you say are turning out to be the majority in a life or death situation. The virus is a slow and a silent killer. In the US, more than 13,000 thousand people are infected with the virus, not to mention more than 207,000 thousand people worldwide on 3/19/2020. As the months go on, it will not be a surprise if the cases increase.

      And yep, after checking back in this subject in a 4 month period, the virus has increased to 12.6 million confirmed cases and 230,000 thousand deaths worldwide on 7/13/2020.
  • Don't believe all the media hype. It's not the doom and gloom that they would have you believe.
  • President Trump is recommending hydroxychloroquine sulfate. It's a drug used to prevent malaria. In the case of malaria, the drug prevents the disease if you have already taken it, though, so, I'm unclear as to whether this is recommended for people who already have coronavirus or people who are at risk of contracting it.
    • Linda Joy
      That don't sound right! Why would Trump be recommending drugs? Do you have a link, please?

    • Berzyerk
      How do I post a link?
    • Berzyerk
      He is the president. so he has vested interest in keeping Americans safe. Also, as president, he has access to the best medical professionals in the country for advice. Being an election year in the US, he also needs to be on top of his public relations.
    • Linda Joy
      Trump didn't recommend it he said the FDA approved it. See this is how misinformation gets spread! You posted the link just fine, though. I only just now saw it.
  • No. Plenty of conspiracies and half truths going around though.
  • Toilet paper apparently.
  • Some of the Princess Cruise patients were treated with Remdezivir and died anyway. I would say that the prospects of it working effectively are pretty slim.
    • Linda Joy
      Some weren't and died anyway. I'd say it may work for some, but better options have come to light. Even natural antibodies don't work for long.
  • As of now, there is no specific treatment for corona virus, however they are treating the patients based on the symptoms or clinical condition. Prevention is still the best way to minimize the spread of corona virus like social distancing and proper hand washing.
    • mushroom
      20 million people in NY can't be wrong.
    • Archie Bunker
      Is the mask that I'm required to wear, that specifically says is doesn't stop Covid-19, good enough?
